Dear All,

I have a partial gastretomy and an ileostomy for almost a year now. I live in the UK. Recently I have started to throw up a lot. I don't know what best to eat or drink. I wonder does anyone have a similar experience and if so could offer some advice? Thank you very much in advance for your help.

I have an illiostomy, I tend to throw up a lot and I can't give you any tips I usually end up having an Ng tube fitted in my stomach through my nose xxx

Thanks Zoe, that's what I'm worried might happen to me too. Although I am not losing weight at present as I am eating high calorie food even though I don't feel like it. I hope you are doing ok at present.

Hi, Just a suggestion... you may want to try smaller, more frequent meals.  It is actually easier on the GI tract.  Take care and hope things get better.  LH

I would give you stoma nurse a call and make an appointment or call your Consultants secretary to see if they can see you, it's only started recently so needs investigating to find out what's causing it
